Also Is there anyway of previewing your docs once uploaded? I can see the PDF name but no option to view the actual document?
The ability to view uploaded documents on the UKVCAS site after upload was not available the last time I applied about a year ago, you could only see the file name. You kind of just have to trust that what you uploaded is what they will be able to see.
I'm just a guy on the Internet who immigrated to the UK. My opinions are based on my experience and interpretation of the immigration rules and should not be considered legal or immigration advice; your mileage may vary.

I put mine under Proof of Identity/Travel History, assuming the intent of providing the expired passport is to show the travel history. If you are providing them for another reason, another category may be more appropriate. As long as the file name clearly describes what it is and it is in a category that could reasonably be considered applicable for the document, you shouldn't have any issues. There is a thread below that may help a bit in picking categories.

Hello Geoeng

I was adding it as I thought they required to see all passports including expired? There was Specific reason other than that. So do I not need to upload this?

Many thanks

If the initial visa was affixed on that expired passport then it might be necessary to upload it otherwise only supply it if the application form/checklist asks that.

Hello Guys

I was under the impression that the applications were being processed in date order. I have noticed on the timeline forum many applications being processed and biometrics done after we had done ours and these people have already got there approval and application granted. Anyone know why this may be the case if they are supposed to be working in date order?

Many Thanks

That is bit indecipherable because of the erratic service and varying individual cases. But you can continue to check the latest development at the following link, and also there is a live text commentary is in place at various section of the board that may mollify you as you aren't alone in this boat.

Hello Seagul

I just went on the site and this is what is being said and what I was referring to;

After you have submitted your application via the IDV app or at a UKVCAS appointment, all supporting information is sent to UKVI within 24 hours.

UKVI have told us that they aim to deal with ALL applications in date order. This means that your case will be dealt with by UKVI based on the date of your registration with UKVI/UKVCAS.

If you have been selected to use the IDV app, please do so.
UKVI have assured us that booking an appointment does not mean that your application will be processed more quickly.

Obviously they are not doing it in date order at all

Due to varying nature of each case the date order won't work.
